Oil Paintings and Paper Work

By Monica Stewart
 
 

Monica Stewart says of her work that it “explores the world of small objects, particularly from nature. When painted, these objects take on a form of suspended animation, which allows for speculation about their respective past lives, making them more like relics or artifacts.”

Oil on Panel

By Jane Lafarge Hamill
 
 

I rely on action and speed of hand to cut out conscious thought, the ego, to get to something more primal. They’re portraits in a sense because they’re a physical result, or really a re-playing after the fact, of interactions, both real and imagined…

Concrete, Aluminum and Acrylic Installations

By Troy Simmons
 
 

I tell my life story through concrete, color fields and organic abstract forms. They help express my thoughts and beliefs, serving as a narrator for my day-to-day experiences. Through my current work, I explore social behavior, depression, relationships, aging, and prosperity. My personal experience with these topics helps fuel my passion to create art that exposes the stable coexistence of different entities….

Wild Hives / Black Queens

By Kaylynn Sullivan TwoTrees
 
 

Making and creating is a link to deep remembering. The objects I make are artifacts and a residue of the process of remembering. It is possible that these artifacts can stir memories for others — not the same memory but connecting to the multiple resonant, dissonant and incommensurate sense of self and remembering ourselves back into the continuing creation of Life…

As oil, gas, and coal extraction and exploration mounts a feeding frenzy, I wonder if in my lifetime I will witness the extinction of Arctic life incarnate, the polar bear. I spend my days painting the bears, humbly joining my soul with theirs, in belief of the Inuit legend of interspecies soul exchange…

Shape Towers

By Holly Savas
 
 

My mixed media collage work is a visual expression of the contrasts I see in the world. I tend to view life in abstract fragments: bits and pieces of colors and shapes that float, clash and connect to one another across two dimensions in front of me as I move through my environment…

Collage
